B-Tech Project

UN Human Rights has launched the B-Tech Project which will seek to provide authoritative guidance and resources to enhance the quality of implementation of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human rights with respect to a selected number of strategic focus areas in the technology space.

During 2019, UN Human Rights consulted informally with a range of actors from civil society, business, States, and other experts about the scope of the B-Tech Project. Following a multi-stakeholder consultation in the margin of RightsCon in June 2019, UN Human Rights issued an open call for submissions on the draft paper and the proposed focus areas for the project. Several submissions were received from different stakeholders, which have informed the final version of the scoping paper.
